No, thanks

Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. – James 2: 17

In Ireland

Making A Difference

Fiona is a Tearfund volunteer passionate about justice. She shared this passion with her church in Mullingar.

Her church raised funds through a cake sale and prayed for a church in Malawi. The church in Malawi, led by Pastor Cuthbert, is helping mothers affected by HIV. And providing drought-resistant crops to farmers affected by a changing climate.

Fiona is part of a miracle. A global miracle that’s transforming lives.

Faith without action is dead? Those are challenging words. How should we respond?

At Tearfund we want to inspire and equip Christians in Ireland to understand God’s heart for the poor: to pray, to give, to act, to campaign. It all counts.

Inspiring and Equipping

Development Education

Tearfund Ireland’s experienced team facilitate development education workshops at conferences, youth events and church leader’s seminars. We have lots of resources that we can send you for use with youth groups. If you would be interested in hosting a workshop or are looking for resources for your youth group please get in touch.

Just People? Course

This six-week interactive Bible study course (DVD & facilitators guide) brings together down-to-earth theology, reflection, inspiration and experience with practical exercises. It will help your church grapple with issues of justice and poverty and think practically about how they can respond effectively as an integral part of their mission. Find out more here or order your copy for €35 today by calling 01 8783200.

We also have many other useful prayer, reflection and fundraising resources and events to help you make a difference. If you would like to talk to us and find out how to use our resources then please call 01 8783200.

Speaking out

We also want to help you speak out against injustice and to lobby for positive change. We are advocating at national and international levels of government and civil society to challenge and change unjust policies, structures and systems that keep people vulnerable and marginalised. We also work in partnership with organisations like Dóchas to influence key decision-makers and policies within both the Irish Government and the European Union.

HIV and stigma in Ireland

‘Can you get HIV from shaking someone’s hand?’ a friend asked me recently. I was shocked that a well-educated Irish person could know so little. Tearfund Ireland and its partner ACET are working with churches across Ireland to change attitudes towards HIV. Pastor Adewale Kuyebi of Christ Apostolic Church in Dublin says “There is a great deal of ignorance about HIV among my congregation”. We were able to provide training and resources for his church and others like it across Ireland.
